TWO men reportedly involved in a spree of burglaries of high-value cars will appear at Sheffield Crown Court.

Levi Deakin, 22, of Pearson Crescent, Wombwell, did not indicate a plea when faced with a series of charges at Barnsley Magistrates’ Court on Monday.

He and second suspect Josh Cooke, 24, of Cemetery Road, Wath-upon-Dearne, were both charged in connection with the theft of a Volkswagen Tiguan from Sackup Lane, Darton, last Friday.

Cooke pleaded not guilty to the charge.

Deakin was also charged with the theft of an Audi S6 from Upper Sheffield Road on January 25, and an Audi RS3 from White Cross View, Worsbrough on February 1.

On February 4, it’s also alleged he drove a stolen Mazda 3 dangerously and without insurance on roads around Rotherham, and he was also found to have £1,000 in cash on his person.

A further charge related to stealing keys to a Volkswagen Golf and a Mercedes A-Class at a property on Farm Road, Kendray on January 1.

The two will appear at Sheffield Crown Court on March 8 and remain in custody until then.

“Officers are still searching for a Blue VW Tiguan R 4Motion, registration YT21ORN that was stolen on Friday February 4,” said a spokesperson for South Yorkshire Police.

“This may now bear false plates, but is possible to have been parked unattended for a few days.

“Any sightings, please contact 101 and quote incident number 187 of February 4.”
